No fins. Teaches better edge control and you can do surface tricks

Removing fins from my board was the best thing I ever did. Much fewer front edge face plants when trying to swap to switch.

No fins. Makes it slick but will help your control for sure

NO fins - Unless you're at a Jimmy Buffet concert.

No fins.

When I upgraded to some real close toe boots it made a huge difference and took away any desire to have fins.

Again, no fins. It forces you to have better form while edging and you will actually save a lot more landings.

the only time i put fins on any of our boards is if a new rider is struggling to to keep the board in line with the boat. most boards have enough molded in stuff anyway.
